NQT Programme

“This has helped me feel so much more supported.  I feel like there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Nothing can prepare you for the onslaught of mental and emotional demands placed upon you in your first year of teaching!  No matter how organized and competent you are, you will undoubtedly have your confidence knocked and your self belief challenged.  As an NQT you are faced with a multitude of demands on your time and energy.  Throughout the year long training, you receive encouragement and assistance during your first academic year so that you feel fully supported during your induction.  You are given a voice where your concerns are aired and shared. You can fully express your qualms and gain support from the group dynamic.  You learn practical tools to support not only your own emotional resilience but also the resilience of your students.  You will gain insight in how to effectively and healthily manage the ‘teacher lifestyle’ so that you can “have a life!”
